    Tens of thousands of people are expected to pack the streets for Boston's largest sporting event, held on the Patriots Day holiday, which commemorates the start of the American Revolution. Defending champion Atsede Baysa was also in the pack.

    Mourinho: United Controlled Chelsea

    Sports

    Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho, Manchester United's manager was understandably chuffed yesterday, proclaiming that he had found a system to halt Chelsea's seemingly unstoppable march to the title. Rashford excelled up front, stretching Chelsea's center backs with the kind of movement and pace that Ibrahimovic would not be able to offer. And Mourinho was thrilled with the display of his striker in the 2-0 victory, as well as highlighting the contributions of centre-backs Eric Bailly and Marcos ...

    All eyes will be on Henrik Lundqvist in this series, as he will need to play at the top of his game for the New York Rangers. Of course, we put Kevin on the spot and ask for his New York Rangers round one prediction. It took the Rangers much of the period to generate any offensive pressure that included some power play opportunities. Momentum shifted in New York's favor over the next few minutes, but fell back into Montreal's hands with a pair of back-to-back penalties against the ...

His brace sinks Leicester today. "You can't dismiss his ambition but it's a shame he regards such an admirable club as little more than a stop-over".

    United played with two up front and with wing-backs who were high up the pitch. An excellent finish in the 7th minute gave Manchester United an early lead but the ball clearly touched Ander Herrera's hand before reaching goal-scorer Marcus Rashford .

    I believed that when I arrived here and I have tried to pass this on to my players. "And he was so right. And he was so right, he's a special player". "He has respect of all of his team-mates, and his trainers". He said: "The response was the most pleasing thing". Silva is still very much respected in Portugal for doing a great campaign with Estoril, and his departure from Sporting is seen as unfair due to the disagreement with the club's board.

    In the end, however, the Warriors simply had too much firepower, closing the last 12 minutes with a 33-21 run, a blistering assault that was anchored by a Draymond Green 3 that gave the Warriors the lead for good. McCollum finished with 41 and Lillard with 34 but it wasn't enough to deal with the deep contributions from up and down the Warriors bench. Five Warriors scored in double figures, led by Kevin Durant pouring in 32 points and Stephen Curry putting in 29.

    The Blackhawks didn't make life too hard for Pekka Rinne in Game 1 , and it wasn't much better in Game 2. The way they started off this game they looked out of sorts, to say the least. Somehow, the Hawks have not scored a goal for 120 consecutive minutes. "We've got to roll". The neutral zone trap is taking away a lot of those big transitional opportunities they depend on, but they can still build upon the good zone entries by pushing further in and trying to create more from down low.
